Martine has a background in communication and an MSc in Biology. Before joining LIBER, she worked as communications advisor for Leiden University Medical Center and the Faculty of Science of Leiden University.
Speaking about her role: “Science has become so hyper specialized and scientists are often very focused on their own domain. I think one of the main challenges is to connect these different disciplines again and make science more accessible. I think it’s great how LIBER works on these issues by being part of projects related to open science and text and data mining and I am looking forward to contributing to this.”
